As like all festive seasons, we just cannot help but cheat on our diets and neglect our exercises. Our daily routine seems to be the first casualty when we’re celebrating a festivity like Hari Raya. But for this Raya, Apple is determined to keep you in shape with the help of their Apple Watch Series 4. The watch comes with watchOS 5 that features new hardware tracking systems like electrocardiogram (ECG) from its new ECG app. Apple has even widen the watch’s display by 30% giving you wider and easier access to your functions.
For this Raya, Apple has approached two fitness lovers for advice on how to put your Apple Watch to good use. Nana Al Haleq is a fitness model and tv personality. Ain Ramli is now currently a fitness advocate and celebrity fitness trainer and was formerly part of the National Rowing team.

Always listen to your body. I think this is something that has often been neglected and should be put as a priority. Train smart by doing what’s within your capacity to avoid burning out as this can hold you back from performing at optimum and staying active.
Prioritise a good night sleep. Have you been sleeping well and enough? If you haven’t, this is something that you should be putting on top of your priority list. Your effort will be wasted if you don’t get a good night sleep as the body can’t recover and grow. (To make sure you have a good night sleep, try AutoSleep Tracker on Apple Watch).
Keep your micronutrients in check. Having a limited window of time to eat can slightly deplete our body of vitamins and minerals. Make sure to have your essential vitamins daily to help your meet your micronutrients needs.
Have good nutritious food for iftar and sahur. To move better, we have to fuel better. Binge eating and eating too much sugar, refine carbohydrates & oily food can slow down your metabolism and interfere with your digestion. Pick and eat food that will help you recover, function better and meet your macronutrients needs.
